Anybody who's caught the satire that appears from time to time in Syndicate Wars stuff, can probably guess that I am not the biggest fan of government or police. Violent enforcement against nonviolent, non-contractual behavior (the overwhelming majority of police action) is aggression—it is assault and kidnapping—and I oppose it outright.
But how can anyone go into public with the stated and/or executed intent to...
- destroy property;
- steal property;
- prevent people from moving freely;
- attack people for wrongthink;
- murder people (usually black people, and in far greater numbers than American police have ever committed);
- set fires (sometimes to buildings with people inside);
- topple historical landmarks;
- trash neighborhoods in ways that disproportionately affect minorities and the poor;
- and overthrow a constitutional republic...
...and then act surprised and indignant when they get their infantile asses thrown in jail?
This isn't #fascism, and #BlackLivesMatter (the organization) and #Antifa aren't fighting fascism. They are in fact, and ironically, fascistic themselves.
What this is, is cause and effect, the consequences of bad behavior.
